Try A Journal Want Ad Pharmacy Phacts From Nell Evander Have you ever thought of the letters 'M.D.' as standing for "My Doctor"? Rather interesting idea, isn't it? Here in our pharmacy it's a never-ending source of satis- faction to hear the very justifia- ble pride in our customers' voic- es when they speak of "my doctor". And, we appreciate their confidence in knowing that we understand aria will carefully follow the instructions "my doc- tor" gives us.

A hot new V-8! slopes south of Pirates' Cove re- sulted in a neasty fall over the high embankment for young Les- lie Okonek Sunday afternoon. Nearby clam diggers stayed with the obviously injured boy while his companion Larry Lutz ran to smnmon tlclp. Uuon arriving at the Stmlton General Hospital, x-rays revealed that Leslie had suffered a double fracture of his right leg just above the ankle as well as a slightly dislocated ankle joint. The fractm'es were set Monday morn- ing but Leslie did not expect to be i'eleased from the hospital for an- other day or so due to the sever- ity of the injury. Leslie, who is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Ed Oko- nek, also had his little cocker spaniel along and. being insepar- able pals, "Brownie" also fell but was fortunate enough to survive the fall with only painfttl bruises resulting. In Grapeview visiting with the folks at this crucial time were Mr. and Mrs. Richard Okonek and tiny two-month old Sheri Lym who was making her first visit o her grandparenLs from her Tacoma home. Two wedding anniversaries and a happy birthday were sufficient reasons for a most pleasant even- ing being hosted by Bill and Judy Staudt at teir Benson I,ake home Saturday evening. Not only were Bill and Judy belatedly celebrat- ing their March 25, twenty-third wedding anniversary but also brother Louie's "29th" birthday. At the stroke of midnight Art and Ernestine Nicklaus were congra- tulated upon their anniversary of twelve years of wedded bliss. After a lively evening of dancing to both "live" and "canned" music and enjoying friendly companion- ship, Bill and Judy's delicious mid- night supper of enchiladas, baked ham various salads and other tempting goodies sent everyone home in a conviyial mood. Those friends gathering to join the fun besides Bill and Judy, the Nick- lauses and Louie Staudt were Louie's wife Dorothy, Joe and Shirley Engen, Don and Shirley Pogreba, Ed and Louise Okonek, Howard and Muriel Somers, Russ and Ruth Wells. Kay Sanford, Rol- lie Martin and Walt and Salli Clayton. ANOTHER anniversary celebrat- ed Saturday was that of young Kristofer Nicktaus' third birthday. Kristofer celebrated with the fam- ily at Grandmother Ruby Crane's home in Shelton. A jolly weekend was spent at their Grapewew beach home by the Jack Milner family as well as by their weekend guests, Mr. and Mrs. Ivan Alderson of Seattle. Driving over Friday evening, the two couples managed to stir up a little excitement in the Gorst area when the Aldersons' car, pulling their trailer, developed an over heated engine and began to send forth smoke. Unbeknown to them, spree unknown person noticing this condition, turned in a fire alarm to which the Gorst fire department promptly responded, much to the Aldevsons and Milners' surprise. Grapeview was safely reached, however, but Jack and Ivan found their; choice of a trailer parking area to be somewhat unfirm, and spent a fail' portion of time dis- lodging the recalcitrant vehicle.

In spite of the unforeseen compli- cations, the two couples, both of Fort Lawton 10th Corps "vintage", managed to have a most enjoyable several days together, leaving for Seattle and home Sunday after- noon. The nnnor surgery to be perfor- med on Bill Stoudt Er, the pre- vious Tuesday had to be postpon- ed until this past Tuesday due to complications. In the meantime. Bill discovered, much to his dis- comfort, that he was suffering from the gout and is at present being treated for same. Since Bill will be hospitalized for a week or so yet. we are sure that tie Woll(t very much appreciate hearing from his friends, his address being: Bre- merLon Naval Hospital, S.O.Q., Bremerton Wash Her friends will be relieved to hear that Mrs. Walter Clayton, St. has been satisfactorily recuperat- ing this week after having .been quite ill the previous week. I)IMINUTIVE year-old Barbara Hinesh kept Grandma Kay San- lord wet1 occupied for several days. She and her mother. Mrs. Bill Hin- csh, Kay's only daughter, came up by car Thursday from their Portland home and stayed for a nice visit with grandma until Mon- day. The weatherman added to the pleasure of their little vacatmn by providing some sunshine between bail, snow and raindrops. On vacation from his work with the St. Paul-Tacoma Lumber Com- pany in Auburn. Mr. and Mrs. Ray Jewett spent from Weduesday un- til Friday night here in Grapeview as guests of Mr. and Mrs. Les Soule. Long-time Tacoma friends, the two couples kept busy gather- ing clams and oysters, and as a special treat, Les prepared his very special plekled oysters for them to take home. We erroneously reported several weeks ago that one of out" newest Grapeviewites. Joel Bengtson, was a ralh'oad engineer, He is a mech- anical engineer, retired from the Pacific Car and Foundry at ken- ton. Of special interes might be the fact that this is the same out- fit that built the Space Needle for the Seattle World's Fair. The Bengt sons are the new owners of the former Carl Koistad place. The obvious sound of well-dig- ging equipment heard last week came from the summer cottage of Miss Veronica Kovak, just north of the Ralph Teats' residence. Wa- ter was reached at 68' with very little difficulty. That frisky blow we had last Thursday managed to lift Leslie Okonek's twelve-foot aluminum boat right off the dock and ker- phmked it into the water. Fortnn- ately, mother Louise heard it and, in the ensuing chase, followed it by car as far as the bridge w, here, by wadin K out, she was able to re- trieve it. Pretty chilly for "water sports", I'll bet! THE DON Johnstons tore them- selves away from their Bellevue home to spend Sunday here at their beach cottage just south of Claytons. Braving snow, hail and rain, they did manage to enjoy a brief moment of sunshine, a visit with the neighbors and the satis- faction of finding the place in good order. Little Debby was accom- panied by friend Shelly Baleh While son Mike renewed local friendships. Mrs. Myron Polk's many friends Will be sorry to learn of the pas- sing of Mrs. Polk's mother, Mrs. Vina LaCrosse, at Sequim last Fri- day afternoon.

Girls League Earl Crmnb drove a busload of excited girls to Miller Junior High School in Aberdeen last Saturday for the semi-annual conference of the Northern Division of the South- west Washington Girl's League, Even the rain. hail and snow that fell during the day didn't dampen their spirits. Forty-seven of our 54 girls were able to attend, ac- companied by their advism', Mrs. McDowell. The principal feature of the morning meeting was an interest- ing and lively talk by William E. Lucas on Women on Frontiers. Lucas is well-qualified to speak on the frontier as he is an authority on the Oregon Trail. Following Lucas' talk various skits were pre- sented depicting different aspect of the frontier theme.

When he put his net in the water with one hand and lifted the pole with the other hand, the pole suddenly lots its weight and he looked up to see that the line had broken, giving" him the hor- rible feeling of having lost fish, hooks, dodgers and all. As he glanced back to the net. how- ever, he was surprised and de- lighted to see a beautiful four- pound salmon as well as all his gear safgly in the net. We call that real fisherman's luck! GEORGE AND RUBY Lewis are well aware that spring" has sprung. As a direct result, their pedigree German Shepherd has not only suffered about 100 bites in one leg alone, but numerous and deep cnough lacerations elsewhere to necessitate being hospitalized in Bremerton for the better part of a week, It might do well to warn our children who might be waiting for or departing from school bus- ses not to trust the dispositions of any dogs travelling in packs.
